It's like in Alpine ski racing when a skier can feel the difference in 1 or .5 degree change in their edge camber.
Minnaar is legendarily fastidious with his setups, from tire psi to suspension, just ask Jordi Cortez. Brandon Semenuk too, with bike geo - there's a story about how he said something was 'off' with a brand new build, SRAM tech measured it, and the fork was 5mm too low.
Tire pressure is no different as Spomer points out, as it will be the same on a relative scale when testing under consistent conditions. Niki Lauda, the great F1 driver was just as meticulous with his cars. When people are the top competitors in their sport, it's because they can not only perform better, but also because they are in tune with themselves and their equipment in ways a lot of us can't/won't understand.

I'm not bashing, nor am I hating, we just predicted this unholy marriage over a decade ago. 3 frame sponsors in 4 years, Brian? It's time to take a good hard look at yourself. Rehab for character flaws is just called, "therapy." And as for those that say they wish they had Lopes's, "mad skills"...we all do. The point is that you need more than mad skizzies. The two protagonists of this announcement are, and repeat after me, bottom... of... the...barrel.

I don't get why there are so many brands wanting to pay older riders to represent their companies. What exactly are the brains behind Ellsworth thinking by promoting an older rider who doesn't even race anymore. The industry is changing fellas. Time to start hooking up the up and comers, you know, the guys who are out racing and providing media content. For the price you paid for Lopes you could have helped out a handful of kids I'm sure.

C50_102468110_1275590622

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame from friends that worked there in hopes budget would come back. I sent out proposals but teams were filled and I was branded. It was really no prob because I have great sponsors like Sram, FOXMTB, Clif Bar, and Camelbak that stepped up and kept me going. I do feel obligated to have a bike sponsor to finish that circle of sharing content and promoting my brands together, so a frame sponsor was needed. This past year Drew from Declinemag had a Canyon laying around so I figure I try something new and kept the shred alive! Season is done and I had fun. No pity for me tho, I've been dreaming for 22years, and will keep dreaming sponsors or not! I love this shit!

Thanks for kind words everyone and thank you Spomer for watching out for Homies!!

Liked a comment about feature How in the Hell Does Kirt Voreis Not Have a Bike Sponsor? 11/11/2016 4:46 PM

Kirt is a real OG and godfather of today's mtbing. Maximum respect to him. People like him and Lenosky belong in the MTB hall of fame. But unfortunately that's life in the biz today. The progression curve is so steep that people who were Legends six or seven years ago, are getting schooled by 15-25 yr old kids that have no sponsors and just riding for fun.
For better or worse- you can blame the internet and YouTube. Back in the day, people thought bunnyhop tailwhips were impossible on mtb, but now seems pretty common. The "monkey see-monkey do effect" is powerful.....(where it seems impossible until you get on YouTube and dozens of other people doing it). It reminds me of a many years ago when I was trying to learn 360 bunnyhops, and they seemed impossible---then I was on YouTube and was blown away that some fat 16-17 year old kid in Arkansas was doing them easily on a Walmart bike. I credit that fat kid for giving me the intense motivation to learn that trick. It's bike Darwinism........just ask Blackmarket bikes and Atomlab.
